S-Curve - Upper Wall Rock Climbing

Continuing the S-Curve tradition, the Upper Wall has mostly sport routes in the 5.10 - 5.11 range. This wall is smaller and more broken than the lower wall. A few routes require a walk-off to the west, but most can be lowered with a single rope.
From the digital sign at the mouth of Big Cottonwood Canyon, drive 4.25 miles up canyon until the very obvious S-Curve in the road. There is a small parking lot and also room to park along the side of the road. Follow the Mill B North Fork trail on the north side of the road to the third switchback as for the Lower Wall. Branch off to the east and follow the length of the Lower Wall to the east. Find a trail that rounds the east end of the Lower Wall and head up a gully to the north to read the Upper Wall.

Climb an easy corner and around the right side of a pinon pine to the bottom of the steep face. The first bolt is about 30 feet off the deck. Cruise past the first three bolts with a few mantles and good footwork, clip the fourth bolt and chalk up for the slopers. Pulls on slopers get you to the lip, stand up and pull over the lip (not as easy as it sounds). There is another sizeable gap between the fourth and firth bolts, but the climbing is easy. Climb up a corner under the roof and trave...[more] Browse More Classics in UT
